Chilly Mornings, Warm Afternoons

I’ve still been enjoying our weather over the last week. It’s been very mild for us, and I’m trying to soak it all up while it lasts. This week is a shortened week, so I’m hoping to have some time during the break to work on my Halloween costume, get some things done around the house, sleep in, do nothin’ much, and have some festive fun with family.

3 Things From The Week

Something I Learned: Cats have “free-floating” collar bones (unlike our attached clavicles), which allows them to fit into spaces the same width as their head.

Something I’m Into: I decided to try to cut back on my paper towel usage (#itsnoteasytryingtobegreen), so I bought six small cloth napkins, and for the last couple of weeks I’ve used them anytime I wanted to reach for a paper towel. I’ve been doing a great job! I’ve only used paper towels a couple of times for removing nail polish (because cotton balls are the devil). Lifestyle change!

Something I Appreciate: I tend to resist enjoying fall because I know it’s the beginning of the end: winter. But this year, I’ve been trying to appreciate it more. The leaves have started to really turn their pretty colors now, and the other night there was a giant, low yellow harvest moon with wispy clouds rolling over it. Very Halloween-y.
